A new research presented at the annual meeting of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) in Leipzig, Germany suggests that babies born to mothers with diabetes may be at risk of poor brain development.
Too much alcohol during adolescence could disrupt the development of certain areas in the brain associated with impulse control and development of substance abuse disorder.
Scientists have developed a machine-learning approach that would help in predicting which genes could cause autism.
Many chemicals found in our households were never adequately tested for safety. Children who are exposed to these chemicals, such as air pollutants, plasticizers and lead, are at a risk of impaired brain development.
A new study shows that the use of marijuana during pregnancy is related to abnormal brain structure in children. Comparing children prenatally exposed to marijuana with the unexposed ones, the former showed thicker prenatal cortex, a part of the brain that is involved in decision-making, working memory and complex cognition.
A new study shows that the mother’s voice activates different regions in children’s brains.
The study also revealed that lifestyle changes and behavioral treatment are better than oral medications.
Although cognitive skills tend to decline with age, there are some things you can do to rewire your brain and give a boost to that brain machinery.
A new study from the University of Oxford revealed that the further turtle doves and reed warblers traveled, the more new neurons they had in their brain. Interestingly, however, researchers found the neurons are utilized for different purposes.
Violent, attacking rage in mice could be turned on and off by brain adjustments in a recent study. Researchers say that learning more about brain circuitry regarding aggression in male mice could lend clues later to what drives human actions.
Social insects have smaller brain regions for central cognitive processing than solitary insects, researchers say.
Bisphenol A, a chemical known as BPA that's commonly used in consumer products, reportedly affects brain development in young zebrafish, causing concern that it can also negatively impact human brains still developing in the womb, according to new research.
A team of researchers are arguing that the cerebellum, not the neocortex, is the "seat of all humanity" and what truly helped us become more than apes millions of years ago. Such a theory goes entirely against traditional neuroscience and evolutionary theories, but according to a recent study, the team has some strong evidence to back their claim.
Your son or daughter's Picasso-esque scratches of crayon on paper may actually be a good indicator oh how well they will do in school, a team of researchers is now suggesting.
Researchers have found that crayfish can do something that no human on earth could hope to achieve. These tiny crustaceans can grow new brain cells from blood alone. This is a remarkable find, because neurologists have thought for more than a century that new neural material could only be produced by specialized stem cells in the spine and brain.
